CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A member of the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' (RHOA) show is facing an assault charge after an alleged incident inside a bar that he owns in Charlotte.

According to court officials, a criminal summons has been issued for simple assault against Peter Thomas. Thomas is the husband of Cynthia Bailey and has been on the RHOA for five seasons.

Thomas opened Sports One Bar, along the 500-block of North College Street, in 2014.

According to a police report, officers were called to the uptown Charlotte bar early Sunday morning around 1:25 a.m.

A 45-year-old man told police he was assaulted in the bar. The man called WBTV and claimed Thomas assaulted him.

According to the police report, officers consulted with an off-duty police officer and a witness to the alleged incident and determined no assault occurred.

Monday, a Mecklenburg County judge reviewed the police report and issued a summons for Thomas' arrest on simple assault. As of Monday afternoon, that summons had not been served.

WBTV reached out to Sports One for comment, but has not heard back.
